90 doctors in Maharashtra resigned due to harassment by administration


      

     

      Unparalleled sacrifice by medical community during pandemic  has not  resulted in any enhancement of  respect or prestige to the medical  profession. It was not enough  to stop physical or verbal assaults, legal or financial  exploitation. It was not sufficient  to alter the course of oppression  by administrators or moral blackmail by society. Sadly it is getting more worse. Doctors and nurse have been reduced to sacrificial lambs, that are easily slayed, when administrators tend  to put  themselves on high moral  pedestals. 

Financial and legal complexities have been the major side effects of modern medicine, especially for doctors. They are facing  complex  environment,  which are beyond their control. Besides financial and legal complexities, moral dilemmas, facing verbal and physical assaults are creating  complex working conditions. But if doctors are not able to work, who will be the sufferer, does not need an Einstein brain  to guess. Criticized  by administrators despite their sacrifice, media insults are adding to their disillusionment and possibly  a withdrawal response.

90 doctors in Maharashtra  resigned  due to harassment by administration

Over 90 gazetted medical officers posted in Yavatmal district of Maharashtra have resigned today from their service allegedly due to consistent harassment by the administration and District Collector MD Singh. 

These doctors have been serving at the civil hospital, sub-district and rural hospitals and primary health centres in various capacities. 

In a letter written to the government today, Dr Rajesh Gaikwad and Dr Pramod Rakshamwar, both office bearers of the Maharashtra Association Of Government Medical Officers, says, “Despite marathon efforts by the doctors throughout the pandemic, administrative officers and DM is mistreating the doctors which has led to resentment among entire fraternity.”

     Such  incidents  are not only  painful to the medical fraternity but also expose the hypocritical  attitude of the administrators as well as  the insensitive approach of society towards health care workers, although everyone expects doctors and nurses to be sensitive towards everyone else. Such indifferent   attitude demoralizes and causes deep discouragement to the front line doctor and nurses, but sadly remains a routine business for administrators. The pain of being  treated like a dispensable disposables remains as  a deep hurt within.
